The 360 members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir represent men and women from many different backgrounds and professions and range in age from 25 to 60. They reflect a medley of unique lives and experiences and are brought together by their love for singing and their faith. Their incomparable voices are the common chord that unites to form the choral group known all over the world as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
The Choir has appeared at 13 world's fairs and expositions, performed at the inaugurations of five U.S. presidents, and sung for numerous worldwide telecasts and special events.
Five of the Choir's recordings have achieved "gold record" and two have achieved "platinum record" status.

Review: The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, accompanied by the huge Tabernacle organ, bring us some beautifully sung, authentic Civil War songs. We learned some of these songs in elementary school, and remember being touched by their poignancy, at the same time appalled to learn of the bloody slaughter. Soldiers on both sides marched off to songs like "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp," "The Bonnie Blue Flag," "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," "Dixie" and "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," but it's the songs like "He's Gone Away," "Tenting On The Old Camp Ground," "Aura Lee," "Lorena," "Kathleen Mavourneen," "Sweet Evelina," "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child" and the sadly unincluded "One Vacant Chair" that tell the real, heartbreaking story of the war. We're then cheered up, however, by 9 Stephen Foster "pop" tunes, the joyous "Ring De Banjo," "Oh! Susanna," "The Glendy Burk," "Beautiful Dreamer," "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair," "Nellie Bly" and others. A powerful collection from the magnificent MTC.
Songlist: Tramp, Tramp, Tramp , Aura Lee , The Bonnie Blue Flag , He's Gone Away, The Battle Cry of Freedom , Lorena , The Battle Hymn of the Republic , Tenting on the Old Camp Ground , Sweet Evelina, I Wish I Was In Dixie , Kathleen Mavourneen , Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child , When Johnny Comes Marching Home

Review: "America's Choir" began their musical journey in 1847, singing hymns and sacred music, accompanied by the massive Tabernacle organ. These 360 singers, accompanied by an 110-strong orchestra, have in recent years, lent their magnificent sound to recordings of patriotic music, tunes from Broadway musicals and now a musical tribute to master cartoon and movie creator Walt Disney. These 10 songs, from "When You Wish Upon a Star"/"Hi Diddle-Dee-Dee" medley and "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf" to "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah," "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes" and "Some Day My Prince Will Come," are as beautifully arranged and sung as we have every heard them. Listen to "Whistle While You Work"/Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho!" medley, and we are taken back to all the joy and amazement we felt when we first experienced "Snow White," Disney's first animated feature. "Star" is a nostalgic, touching winner from beginning to end!
Songlist: When You wish Upon A Star / Hi Diddle Dee Dee, Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf, A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo, You Can Fly! You Can Fly! You Can Fly!, Zip A Dee Doo Dah, Love Is A Song, Whistle While You Work / Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho!, Some Day My Prince will Come, Spoonful Of Sugar / Chim Chim Cheree / Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Review: Dubbed "America's Choir" by President Ronald Reagan, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir celebrates 75 years of continuous weekly radio broadcasts in July 2004, the longest such run in broadcast history. Evolving from its humble beginnings in the barren Salt Lake Valley in 1847 as a choir singing to sagebrush to its spectacular performances at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, the Choir is now courted by the most sophisticated concert halls in cities across the globe. They have sung at the inauguration of fix U.S. presidents, twice received the prestigious Freedom Foundation Award for promoting patriotism and pride in America, were awarded the prestigious National Medal of Arts, and have been inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame. Please join Walter Cronkite for an amazing look at an American institution and a national treasure.
